Celebration of the Book April 12

The word “book” used to mean one thing: a bunch of printed pages bound together with a sturdy cover. Now, it can be something you listen to or – more frequently – a digital file accessed on an electronic device. Regardless of how it’s delivered, the book is the thing at the Fond du Lac Public Library.

Friends host author Ann Peters April 15

Ann Peters grew up in Taycheedah, just off Highway 151. After graduating from Goodrich, she went to University of Notre Dame and, armed with her degree, off to New York City. Peters’ father, Roger Peters, was a successful local architect. He designed the family home on the Ledge as well as many other notable residences.
